About this Performance

Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, a favorite of LA Phil audiences, has won over critics and audiences alike throughout her meteoric career. She returns for one final time as Music Director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in a widely expressive and colorful program featuring one of her specialties in Debussy’s La mer, the great Impressionist symphony, and Sheku Kanneh-Mason in Haydn’s First Cello Concerto.

Tour programs generally try to do many things, and this one from the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra touches all of the bases, bringing national music new and old and an acclaimed young English soloist in a contrasting classic, capped by a popular showpiece that is also one of the conductor’s specialties. But this is not the introductory calling card of a stranger. CBSO Music Director Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla is much loved in Los Angeles, with five years in titled positions at the LA Phil. And Thomas Adès, whose new symphony on music from his opera The Exterminating Angel opens the program, is also a popular creative colleague with the LA Phil. —John Henken
